Here is a quick way to have an art easel set up for two kids outside. It only takes a few minutes to put up and take down and uses stuff that you have lying around.

All you'll need is a ladder, two old cardboard boxes, and some tape.

Open the ladder, and then tape a cardboard box to each side of the ladder. Add Children and paint and have some fun!!

Don't forget to put on strong sunblock.

Cleanup is a snap.

Share and enjoy!

Flippin' brilliant!!! Well done!
fun idea.
Quick & to the point! I like it!
Good idea, and your children are beautiful!
Shhh...I know, but they are far too confident already. lol. Thanks!
That is great! Painting is always fun, and this looks like a great way for kids to have fun painting without making a huge mess in the house :)
Also doesn't add to the 'kid clutter' which is everywhere. Who needs one more plastic item to trip over when not in use?
